Specifiy order with gaps

Reported by: torsten <torsten.piotraschke@…> Owned by: Jimmy Theis
Priority: normal Component: CustomSelectAdminPlugin
Severity: normal Keywords:
Cc: Trac Release: 1.0


In our trac system we have a couple of combo boxes with a large count of entries. These entries get updated over time and we'd like to have the list in alphabetical order, but also with some standards at the very beginning of the list.
Like this: empty|No Customer|Unknown|A|B|C|...

The combobox entries are configured via the web front end. And these entries get entered by a colleague that is not supposed to be the trac admin, but for this use case I had to give her the permission to be trac admin (this is another issue and probably worth another ticket).

My suggestion would be to provide the possibility to specify a gap between each entry. So instead of incrementing every entry by 1, it would be possible to increment it by n. Thus you'd be able to insert new entries easily.

Are you running the version 0.6.1 of the plugin, available from GitHub? This plugin is currently unmaintained. I had an email exchange with the maintainer last month and he said he's no longer using or developing Trac. The plugin has been tagged with needsadoption to indicate that's it's no longer maintained.

Have you tried CustomFieldAdminPlugin? I'm integrating that plugin to Trac for the 1.2 release. In the interim, I'm more likely to spend time supporting CustomFieldAdminPlugin rather than CustomSelectAdminPlugin.

I'm using the version, that is shipped with the standard trac. I'll look into the CustomFieldAdminPlugin.

The CustomFieldAdminPlugin isn't provided with standard Trac. Where did you get the Trac package that you installed?

comment:4 Changed 7 years ago by torsten <torsten.piotraschke@…>

I was talking about the CustomSelectAdminPlugin. Our IT system installed the trac via pip.

You may close this ticket. The CustomFieldAdminPlugin you suggested, helped me along this issue.
